Zoom XYH-5 - Shockmounted X/Y Capsule
In Stock!

Ultra-stable X-Y Stereo

The Zoom XYH-5 Shockmounted XY capsule (included with the H5 Handy Recorder), is an amazing run-and-gun stereo microphone that captures a spacious 90-degree stereo spread with a strong center image to keep your sound in focus while capturing vital ambience. Both of the XYH-5's cardioid capsules are housed in independent advanced shockmounts capable of absorbing vibration and handling noise from any direction. That, combined with its high SPL handling, makes this module an absolute lifesaver when you're recording in uncontrolled environments or capturing extremely loud sound sources, so it's a great choice for electronic news gathering and rock shows. Take it from Sweetwater - if you've invested in a compatible Handy Recorder, it makes sense to take full advantage of the versatility offered by interchangeable mic capsules. The Zoom XYH-5 lets you do just that!

An excellent mic.

For a small diaphragm mic it rules. It's an excellent capsule for getting started in X/Y recording. It's very good and sensitive for ambience recording. Also the extra TRS input on the side makes it great for recording from line sources.

Zoom H5 w/ XYH5 capsule

This thing is a recording studio in a can! I have quit recording into my computer because of the reliability of this device. In forums, the direct comparison of levels with other brands or earlier Zoom models when using external mics is no match. The H5 and H6 preamps always rock the house. Gain hungry dynamics such as the ATR2100 (Or the identical AT2005s I have) favored by podcasters are well represented, while the phantom power drives my Samson C01 so well I only have the gain set at 5.Had an interview the other day that was suddenly pressed for time, so instead of setting up the two dynamics I just grabbed the H5 and used the XYH5 shock mounted capsule, did a quick levels test with the on board meters and moved the recorder back and forth. This was in a noisy restaurant. There was zero handling noise, and just enough ambient sound to give it atmosphere. Clean and clear interview.With the AT2005s you can do a Skype interview without a mix minus by plugging the USB into the computer, making an XLR connection simultaneously from the same mic into the H5, and then taking an 1/8 inch connection from the computer to the input on the mic capsule. Plug your headphones into the H5 and get the whole picture. This also works for Google Hangouts.This does all my recording. If I was starting a new podcast, I would buy this. The on board mics would give you good recording sound at first, and when Skype interviews came in, Buy the AT2005 and you are ready to go.I do two podcasts, a solo show and a show with some live interviews. Simply put, This device makes podcasting possible. Anywhere, anytime, pull it out and fire it up. So versatile. I think I just might sleep with it under my pillow tonight.
